Is there a way to edit an example on https://janetdocs.com when we find an error?
Matthew Carter
@ahungry
its community driven - when I am signed in on my github (that made a comment) it shows an Edit button
I don't think you can edit someone else's post
Nebojša Stričević
@strika
Right. So what should I do with someone else's post? Try to contact the person somehow? That seems inefficient for small errors.

@andrewchambers
@strika contact @swlkr who wrote the janet docs site
sogaiu
@sogaiu
@strika atm, it seems like @swlkr is the person to ping
lol
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
yeah, he can maybe add that feature, or do a one time fix.
sogaiu
@sogaiu
he might even appreciate PRs to that effect :)
John Gabriele
@uvtc
Any plans for a forum? I like the async nature of a forum, as I'm only sporadically available for IRC
Or I mean gitter.
sogaiu
@sogaiu
ha ha ha -- andrewchambers was just saying that janet would be a good choice to make a forum the other day. at least iirc.
to answer your question though, i haven't heard of any concrete plans.
oh, there was this last year: https://gitter.im/janet-language/community?at=5ca63071bd70a40d5ff60dea -- i wonder what became of it.
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
yeah, I was playing with the fossil scm forum feature
it is quite minimal but seems to work well
Calvin Rose
@bakpakin
A forum would be great, there are a few things that the community needs to supplement gitter
A mailing list for announcement s might also be nice
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
yeah, its kind of a shame github didn't use stars for something like that
stars are kind of a pointless thing without that.
John Gabriele
@uvtc
@andrewchambers oh, wow, didn't know fossil came with a forum. Their own being at https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forum . Small and simple. Looks like it supports some markdown as well.
John Gabriele
@uvtc
Fossil's forum is impressive. You can view threads formatted (html), or not (raw md). Can view a thread hierarchical (nested) or chronological (flat). Nice search feature. Can link to individual posts. Looks very practical.
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
Yeah, it looked simple and quite functional, so it seemed like something someone could do with circlet and janet sqlite haha
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
but im probably way underestimating the work involved haha
sogaiu
@sogaiu
on a related note perhaps, there is this: https://github.com/swlkr/askjanet
Michael Camilleri
@pyrmont
Forums are coming to GitHub (link).

@LeviSchuck
there goes a bunch of disqus instances
andrewchambers
@andrewchambers
I personally would love a renaissance of mini self hosted servers using just sqlite3 and circlet lol
self hosted forum, pastebin, image hosting w.e.
But it makes sense for janet to just use github as part of the web presence I guess while it is officially hosted there.
Levi
@LeviSchuck
The lightness and fastness of the fossil scm stuff is really neat.
I'm still impressed with how performant HN is.
Matthew Carter
@ahungry
I hate disqus ever since I noticed how it added around 200 download requests on my blog
I had wrote this awhile ago as a drop in replacement (clojure backend): https://github.com/ahungry/com.ahungry.comments - similar concept to a real small backend that just persists in sqlite3 db
200 download requests of tracking pixels and ad stuff

@LeviSchuck
I really dislike how much junk the marketing team at my employer throws into google tag manager to bloat the site I work for.
